 We kick off Geek Genie's new WWE section with a look back at the recent "Hell In A Cell" event! HELL IN A CELL Overall, Smackdown's pay per view was good with a few ups and downs.   The New Day vs The Usos WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship Hell in a Cell Match Usually with Tag matches, I don't watch them, I don't find them exciting.

With the introduction of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the recent box office hit  Homecoming , Geek Genie takes a wistful look back at Sam Raimi's original trilogy of movies in the naughties...starting with  Spider-Man . When a young teenager by the name of Tom Holland appeared in Captain America: Civil War , it was the first time a teenager was depicting a teenage Spider-Man.
